This was quite possibly one of the cutest books I've ever read. It really puts in perspective what a majority of queer teenagers feel and go through. But, it also has a cute little romance story intertwined, Randy and Hudson are to die for! You just want to jump into the pages and throw them together because the book is slow burn and at times excruciating to read because you know stuff they don't. Definitely worth reading!


Sixteen-year-old Randy Kapplehoff loves spending the summer at Camp Outland, a camp for queer teens. It's where he met his best friends. It's where he takes to the stage in the big musical. And it's where he fell for Hudson Aaronson-Lim - who's only into straight-acting guys and barely knows not-at-all-straight-acting Randy even exists. This year, though, it's going to be different. Randy has reinvented himself as 'Del' - buff, masculine, and on the market. Even if it means giving up show tunes, nail polish, and his unicorn bedsheets, he's determined to get Hudson to fall for him. But as he and Hudson grow closer, Randy has to ask himself how much is he willing to change for love. And is it really love anyway, if Hudson doesn't know who he truly is?
